Default Jerry Meyers out as USC pitching coach

Any idea what is going on?

Jerry Meyers will be taking an indefinite medical leave of absence from the University of South Carolina and will not return to his position as assistant coach for the Gamecock baseball team. At such time Meyers is capable of returning to work, he could be placed in another position within the USC Athletics Department.

HUGE loss for the program. Jerry was a big part of the early '00s success and in bringing us our second national title. The success of the baseball program was built around his pitching staffs.

This is a top assistant job. There should be a lot of good candidates to choose from.

I have several guesses from a medical standpoint that would make sense but don’t want to speculate. Get better, coach!

Default Re: Jerry Meyers out as USC pitching coach

Wish him well with his health but glad to see him gone as a pitching coach. I have a feeling our new pitching coach won't have full authority over our pitching recruiting and coaching. Our results over the past few years have had lots to do with our pitching coach IMO. I think our new head coach will be involved with our whole team as he should be. I know he has not been pleased with the pitchers who were afraid or could not throw strikes. Can't get players out by walking them. Pitch to contact, something we have not done well recently.

Prayers for Coach Meyers and his family. Hope he rebounds from this with flying colors....


Is this bad timing in terms for the program and replacing Meyers with a quality pitching coach? Typically teams have already solidified their staffs during the summer and early fall months, and are in process of preparing their teams. Would there be top pitching coaches out there available in November to take this job? And how would it impact the pitching staff in terms of coaching fundamentals??

Also, saying "Jerry Meyers out as USC pitching coach" is wrong, but par for the course for this website and its posting masses. Jerry Meyers was not fired from his position as pitching coach, he stepped down from it to focus on health concerns. If he was healthy, he'd still have the job. It's a substantial difference in impression....

Who ever said meyers had full control with kingston? A new head man does things differently..just because he had full control previously has no bearing on whats going on now. You are making an assumption..

Coach Kingston said so on 107.5 earlier this week.

Actually not bad timing by Meyers. It is better that Meyers' leaves now, then say have a more serious issue right before the season starts or during the season. Kingston has time to sort through available pitching coaches in the college ranks, but he can also see if any in the pros would be interested since professional baseball is pretty much over (got some winter ball going on).

Yes, and why I no longer read the State paper, their disrespect for the Gamecocks and their political views

“Medical reasons” tend to abide by their own timing. I doubt strategy had anything to do with it. Get well soon Coach Meyers and Godspeed.

As far as bringing in a quality pitching coach it is possible this is bad timing but I feel sure there are many college coaches who are very interested in coming to USC. As another poster stated there are many options from pro pitching coaches. Since pitching is the most important position on a baseball team I am confident we will bring in a quality coach.

I would like for them to look at FDTC's head coach Preston McDonald as a replacement for Jerry. He was a pitcher at Coker and has done an amazing job at FDTC for being so young. He has taken to them to back to back NJCAA College World Series and has produced a ton of D1 players with several of them like John Taylor and CuJo playing big roles here. He just got named American Baseball Coaches Association/Diamond Sports NJCAA D1 Eastern Region Coach of the Year.
